Zachary's First Birthday Card

Good morning friends

It's Masculine Card Monday here, and I have a CUTE Accordion card to share today.  It's not really masculine, but it IS for a boy.  :-)  This is the card I made for our Grandson's First Birthday.

Elizabeth Craft Designs came out with these adorable critter Peel-Off's that coordinate with Karen Burniston's Star Accordion and I finally had a chance to play with them. I have already purchased a few sheets, and I can see that I will be buying more for sure. Love them!

I made the accordion a little differently, adding a taller solid panel as the third page. I used one of the Elizabeth Craft Designs Tags & More dies to cut the scalloped opening, and their new hinges dies as decorations on the 'posts'.

I love the new Star Fancy Frame Edges, and I used all three of them on this card. I added the ECD double sided adhesive to the back of the blue card stock, which made the Frame Edges nice and easy to adhere.

Just look at how sweet these Peel-Off's are!

Below you can see the Tags & More Lace die that I used to cut away the top panel.
